I only wore gloves when filling diesel.

When setting up camp, fresh water first, sewer, wash hands.

Breaking camp, stow fresh water first, sewer, wash hands.

No gloves. Just wash hands thoroughly at the outside faucet & then wipe the faucet handles down with a Clorox wipe (since I just touched them with icky fingers).

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

It is funny to think of all the items one can touch in a days time that can transfer germs of some type. The number one culprit, used to be, is money. When you hand the cashier a $20 bill and get change back, where has that change been. Do you the go immediately and wash it and your hands?

When you ride an escalator do you hold on to the ride rails? If so, you are picking up one of the most common causes of passing fecal matter and it has been reported as such. A video showed a person on an escalator riding down, picked his nose and then wiped it on the rail of the escalator. Sorry for the gross description but it actually happened.

Did the person leaving the restroom before you wash their hands? You did, but then you have to touch the handle if it is a pull in door (hate them), or just use the paper towel you had and then what - throw it on the floor if there is no container near by.

There was a hidden camera show at one time that showed workers in restaurants and fast food places and what they did while cooking food. It was pretty gross.

So how clean is clean. If you wash completely after hooking up or breaking down you are most likely just as clean as the person who used gloves, touched faucets, pull levers and possibly other items around the MH.

It goes with the other items like how many times a year do you sanitize your drinking hose, holding tank, change filters, etc.

It's all in the mind of the beholder. One does what one wants to do. As for not eating with anyone else, I sure would not want to miss all that good food and good company.

Bulk box of latex or similar gloves in the hookup side, Always. Wear them for all sewer business which comes after water hookup and after water disconnect.
Water items store in side bend, sewer hose in bumper and extra connectors in milk crate in front storage. Never together.
Spray can of Lysol in side bend. Hose ends sprayed before and after hookup. Spigot sprayed before and after. City water connector sprayed before hose hookup.
Hand sterilizer in drivers door pocket.
Can't be too safe nowadays.

Yes, exactly. Not rocket science. Only touching the inside of the glove. Doesn't take long to learn it. Thumbs up.

I also ran with scissors as a kid and my play pen had lead paint and I rode my bicycle on the streets and highways without a helmet if that helps any.
OMG. I bet you can turn water to wine and heal the blind.

You're right. Hard to find an older 20 bill without cocaine or meth residue.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!



HAPPY NEW YEAR!
